Harcourt Valley Barbara's Shiraz 2009

This is another pleasant wine from Harcourt Valley Vineyards in Bendigo.  Spices, pepper, sweet fruit, and baked red currants are there by way of fragrance.  The palate is pleasant with evident sweet red currant fruit and a touch of length.  Seemingly low in acid and tannins, the wine expressed itself in a somewhat free form manner.  A very easygoing style of wine.  84 points (6.9/10)
